Graph: Upcoming 20 Days of Clayton Hotel Rates

Rates shown are nightly rates before taxes and do not necessarily reflect all Clayton, GA discounts available. The chart reflects the cheapest Clayton hotel for each day and each star rating category.

Start your visit by exploring the historic downtown district, where you'll find art galleries, antique shops, and delicious restaurants.

Moreover, the town is surrounded by an abundance of parks, trails, and nature preserves, making it the perfect place to come to for an outdoor adventure. Hike or bike the trails at Panola Mountain State Park, watch the deer roam at Fort Yargo State Park, or enjoy water activities on lakes of Moccasin Creek State Park or High Falls County Park - Clayton is your starting point to explore the nature of the area.

Best Time to Visit

Clayton is an excellent destination for tourists all year round. However, we believe that the best time to visit Clayton is summer. This way, you'll be able to spend as much time outside as possible to see all the wonders surrounding Clayton.

The town's summers usually truly start by the end of June and end in September. During this period, make sure to dedicate some time to hiking or even camping in the Black Rock Mountain State Park.

Black Rock is the highest park in Georgia, with an altitude of 3,640 feet, making the area a bit colder than the rest of Georgia, so it's the best place to escape the summer heat. The park offers ten mountain top cottages and more than 70 various campsites, including tent and RV options. Come down to the beautiful 17-acre lake. There you can enjoy fishing or paddling, surrounded by the beautiful scenery of lush trees.
And definitely take some time to go for a hike and meet mesmerizing streams and small waterfalls, along with beautiful wildflowers.

The Summit Visitor Center will tell you everything about the history and plans of the Black Rock Mountain State Park and offer you some convenient amenities like picnic areas, restrooms, free wi-fi, and a gift shop.
